“I honestly wish I had this app for most of my university classes. It's actually somewhat fun and super comprehensively built with 1,130 questions and review excerpts on most. Absolutely worth the price tag.” Brian Anderson, Google Play Review
“Brilliant app! Great tool for reviewing for the test, especially while on the go. Went from getting 50s on practice tests to scoring 81 on my PDG exam. Made rank by nearly 30 points. Well worth the cost.” Sean Ward, Google Play Review
